Kerry Washington Tops Vanity Fair Best Dressed List


Kerry Washington snags the top spot on Vanity Fair's International Best Dressed List...

  From The Cut
Just a month after making her a cover girl, Vanity Fair placed Kerry Washington at the top of their 2013 International Best Dressed List, which was released today. In the past year, as Scandal has become more successful, Washington has been stepping out in sophisticated yet fashion-forward ensembles: She wore a Giles cloud gown to the London premiere of Django Unchained, for instance, and a stunning coral Miu Miu to the Oscars, so that top spot seems well deserved.

.... and Jennifer Lopez is not even on the list? GTFOH!

^pretty much everyone has congratulated her so what you talking bout?

Now THIS is my definition of a role model. To the crazed JLo fan, JLo has had her time so why you mad? Now if someone like rihanna isn't on the list, that's something to get mad about..

@4:36 and 4:40... we're talking about Vanity Fair's International Best Dressed List not who your "role model" is.

4:40 Rihanna 's fashion use to be on point back in her Rated R era, but now she dresses like a confused hooker.

This aint coming from hate what I am about to say. Just I have always felt this way.

Very few faces just irk me for no reason. Until Kerry came along it was just two chicks and they're sort of old school: Sheryl Lee Ralph and Gina Gershon. I dont know why but I could never see them as beautiful, only weird looking.

Kerry Washington has that same affect. Yeah she got her nose done so that is fine. But I think it's the shape of her lips and those chipmunk cheeks. I aint for sure but she's funny looking to me.

Dont misunderstand. Those women aren't UGLY to me. Sara Jessica Parker is ugly, Precious is ugly. These women are just odd looking to me.

Congrats on her being best dressed though.

It never fails for them to show up online and make a complete fool of themselves in the insane fashion of doing it everyday and expecting a different result and/or reaction

Let me preface this by saying that I enjoy Kerri work as an actress and I really like her on Scandal but isn't it amazing that the "pre- Scandal fame" Kerri was just another average looking black actress...now all of a sudden she has become an over night head turner. I do not get it?
I guess it is in the eye of the beholder. I personally think she has a classy image and is well dressed...but gorgeous she is not. A "little" weave or "extensions," some "white washing," a good makeup artist and a great stylist and a bit of photo shopping does wonders for the average woman!!! No Hate I'm just saying. Hollywood sure can make a you over LOL!

ms mac said...

@ second 4:45pm, You put that nicely and I definitely feel you. And when she does those damn face contortions on Scandal, I wanna puke on the screen. She probably think it's sexy or beguiling though. *shrugs*

Oh please, this bitch is getting too much attention for being the black girl in a white show.

She should thank Gabby everyday for turning down that role.

@5:17PM... like every Facebook page is real.

It should have said "Vanity Fair's International Best Stylist Award" cuz ya'll she is not dressing herself. On off days, she looks OFF.

G-Union is the most underrated actress in H'wood. How the fuck can Jennifer Annuston be the fourt highest in ($20M) and can't open a movie.by.herself.

But Gabby is still out there.

that's nice. she is always well dressed, never over done or trying too hard.

I just don't get it w her. She looks like the Planter's Peanut...and she looks dirty as hell. Like she puts on a stunning dress, but didn't hop it the tub before she out it on.

I love this woman. I am so glad that some of us do not believe in the silicone fake body parts, tattoos, weaves and loads of make-up to feel pretty. I bet many who get on her nothing is ORIGINAL about you. Moving on she is classy and classy women always win in the end.

@4:21 well said. She must of had great guidance growing up because she is confident, classy and educated.

superblackwoman87 said...

good for her, I'm happy that she's finally getting the attention she deserves...

reading some of the comments on here, wow...being a great actress ain't got shit to do with how you look....

the fact that she's getting compared with Gabby is very laughable...

are we really going to compare gabby who only gets work in black people movies, to kerry who has acted in many oscar nominated movies,

gabby has never been a star in white Hollywood like kerry..

every tv shows gabby has gotten that would make her a huge star, all have flopped

superblackwoman87 said...

lets look at all the shows gabby could have become popular in Hollywood...

1.Night Stalker (ABC)
2.life (ABC)
3.City of Angels (CBS)
4.Flash Forward (ABC)

so yea none of these shows were hits and they were on major network like scandal is on ABC

so bottom line she had man chances to be on kerry's level

Anonymous said...

gabby did not turn down scandal .....she lost the part to kerry....get it right

Anonymous said...

@8:14
While I believe KW carries herself in a very classy manner and is very popular because of a questionable characterization of black women on tv, I also have never considered her attractive and I'm also baffled when she receives accolades for being something akin to a beauty queen. She's definitely not bad looking but beautiful Is not the description that comes to mind... Regal perhaps... It would be great if she could play a character like Queen Nzinga or Nefertiti someday to bring her true shining qualities to light.

Anonymous said...

^the part "because of a questionable characterization of black women on tv" said it all. You are right. I do not watch Scandal because I do not like the fact that it represents us as "black women" in a form. Black women be degraded in many ways even when it comes in a nice form. Many women who like shows like this have played the side chick in real life like my aunt for example. On the flip side Kerry does have class in real life lol.

correction: in a negative form

I like Kerry, but a fashion icon she ain't. I really don't care for her style and keep in mind she is not choosing any of her outfits. She has a hired stylist to do that. Like that thing she's wearing in that picture. It looks off some how. Don't care for her style, but love her acting. Now Salma Hayak has style and should be on any best dressed list.

Anonymous said...

12:38 and 6:20 you are right. She isn't "beautiful" and is barely "pretty." and her style is meh for me. She has some cute outfits on that Scandal show (I don't watch), but that's not her personal style. Someone picked those out for her. I agree she was/is very plain.

Ms. mac I agree about the facial expressions. I thought I was the only one who questioned her acting ability. She looks like she has a tic.

I liked Kerry before more information started coming out about her a few years ago. She is an unapologetic conservative who only hopped on the Obama bandwagon when it became obvious he would win. She wants HIM but really doesn't support his policies OR the Black community.

Just like this wedding she just had (the first black guy she's dated in--forever!) this "award" list is just a bought and paid for PR stunt. At least other people are watching Beyonce and taking notes on how to hype yourself.

To continue, I think many other people could have played Broomhilda in Django (her biggest role to date). Though I have my problems with her, too, Zoe Saldana would have done a great job. Tarantino should have gone with an unknown Black actress to give her shine and start her career. Kerry brought nothing special to the role other than her weird facial expressions. There was no chemistry between her and Jaime Foxx.

I want to add that even though I think it's fake, it's nice to see someone black top the list.

^hating ass bitch!! Kerry was great on Django! She barely had any lines so it was all in the face & she always got that emotion down pat. Also stop talking like Kerry just popped up yesterday or doesn't have a good resume. She's been doing movies for over a decade. I remember her on Spike Lee's 'She Hate Me'. Now tell me - does Spike Lee ever EVER hire bad actresses? 'Last King of Scotland' too. This lady is not a chancer - she studied theatre in high school and college and has been doing it for years. Now for all those saying Kerry isn't stunning, look around at your neighbourhood ho's - now look at Kerry! 'Nuff said!! Hahahahahahahaha

Anonymous said...

I don't care if she's black or purple on the cover. She deserves it because she does bring something different to the red carpet. All the other actresses tend to look generic and like they're selling sex. Kerry tends to be classy and really look like a model, actually selling the style of clothes, on that carpet. Also she's not afraid to take fashion risks, but doesn't do it by being slutty - she does it via actually taking risks with the outfits by wearing garments others wouldn't normally wear. She's what you call 'ecclectic' sp. I totally get her & she was a good choice 'cause people are tired of celebs dressing like ladies of the night

She never did a nose job. She's a natural beauty

Anonymous said...

Thank you, @4:25 AM. I feel the same way about Keri. I never cared for her, always felt there was something very fake about her personality. Hope she enjoys her moment in the sun, because as an over-30 Black actress, it won't be long before Hollyweird chooses another token Black "it" girl.

I hated the way she played herself in last king of Scotland. Where she was sweatin the whiteboy too hard and ended up doing a sleazy sex scene in a cave or something crazy... I remember being repulsed by her in that movie.
I thought I was the only one who sees something "off" about her face and facial expressions.

@9:05, if you felt repulse by her then that means she did her acting job effectively. A good actor evokes emotion. If you come away feeling nothing about the “CHARACTER” being played then that is not a good actor.

I think the reason why some people have a hard time with Kerry aesthetic beauty is because some Black folks are not use to seeing Black women with the fresh face, girl next door look. Now the Black women with arm, chest, and torso tattoos along with the ever so popular trap stamp along with drag queen makeup and horrible lace front wigs; now that’s what’s considered a Black beauty. (Black women please stop taking hair and makeup tips from Drag Queens, they are setting you up on purpose).Oh and let’s not forget the butt injections. But if you look like Tamar Braxton or the exotic Jocelyn Hernandez they are considered dime pieces. LOL. And this is why I White guys love Black women like Kerry Washington.

I see your point but I was repulsed that another one of our classy african queens was degrading the image of black women on celluloid and furthering the myth of the white "savior" while demonizing the motherland and it's historical leaders.

From the CDC,
Comparing 2008 to 2010, the overall estimated number of HIV infections remained stable in every age group and in all racial/ethnic groups. There were decreases among women; including African American women. However burden is still high among African Americans and men who have sex with men (MSM). There were sharp increases in youth, especially young African American MSM.

No, 11:50AM, some people have a problem with Kerry's looks simply because they don't think she's beautiful. Nobody said she was ugly. She's attractive but just not the beauty icon Hollywood is trying to turn her into IMO. And by your logic every Black woman who doesn't wear make-up or weave is beautiful, right? Ok. That's what I thought.

Anonymous said...

@ ms mac 4:13, I think you missed my point. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and if you have read most of the negative comments about her looks most people (I’m assuming Black folks) have said and implied that she is neither beautiful or attractive to which I am to assume means they think she’s ugly. Your opinion is that she is not the Iconic Hollywood beauty which is fine but I actually find it refreshing that a Brown complexion woman wearing her natural hair length without a platinum Blond wig or a little mermaid weave or down her back, or with overly dramatic theater/drag makeup on. That is why I made the comment about the fresh face, girl next door look. I would encourage more Black women to take a break from the fake and synthetic look and play up their naturally beautiful faces. Contrary to what you have been told Authentic Black is Beauty.

@ ms mac 4:13, In my opinion Black women look their prettiness when they take good cares of their skin and wear minimum and tastefully applied makeup. I am not opposed to wigs or weave (I actually like them) but most of the weaves that Black women wear are hideous and ridiculous looking. No one will tell them to the face how truly bad they look because it’s not their business and they don’t care to get into a debate or fits fight over someone else’s hair. Again I will state as I did before, Black women stop getting your hair and makeup advice from Drag Queens because they make real women look ridiculous.
